According to this article the Food Standards Agency is warning people about the dangers of undercooking meat on the BBQ. It seems many people just don’t know when the meat is cooked. As a precaution the agency is recommending that people cook meat inside first before putting it on the BBQ in order to prevent food poisoning. Personally I have got cooking on the BBQ down to almost perfection, I say almost because we do sometimes have our char grilled moments. One thing we don’t ever have though is undercooked meat. Its very easy to make a cut in meat to check if its cooked, much as you would when cooking inside. If in doubt invest in a BBQ tool that checks the temperature of meat and indicates whether it is safe too eat. Cooking it inside first, for me, takes the fun out of the whole BBQ experience.
